View Full Version : Review of my Personal Blog

Hi Everyone,
My personal blog, Metacom Creative, is one of those projects that can never truly be finished. I will always be updating the design, layout, etc etc. But, before I leap into my next batch of updates, what do you think of it? Any recommendations? I would love to hear things you like, but more importantly, I'd like to hear things you don't like!

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Yes, very nice. Background works nice with template. I like it. If I have to suggest something it is that you maybe could remove the wolf on the right and/or put them close together so they look more like a pack.

I like the design of your blog, but I like your content and pics even more :) Count me as one of your new reader!

All the best,

Sorry for taking so long to respond, but I wanted to say thank you to everyone for the compliments! It's taken me awhile to get to the design I'm currently at, and I still have a lot more I'd like to do.

I will be tweaking the design a bit more as soon as I get the time. If you have any ideas or criticisms I would love to hear them! I have thick skin, don't worry, haha!

What I like in your blog is the design. I like it because it was good in eyes. Hope to see more blog from you. Good luck!

Very nice.
The only thing that appeared 'out of place' to me was the line through the background. To me it appears that it isn't wanted, so I Gaussian blurred it out.

Thanks Thomas! That actually was a design flaw on my end. Thanks for not only pointing it out, but taking the time to blur it! That will definitely go on my "To-Do" list of things to fix, haha.

Your design is very nice and pleasing to the eyes. The only problem I had with it is that to reach the main menu you always have to scroll back to the top of the page.

You're welcome =)

this cool~~~but seems the background looks different in different resolution, sorry for my poor english, i mean that in my computer, there is too many blank in the bottom~~~

My favorite aspect by far: the background. It's beautiful. And I'm a sucker for naturalistic themes.

Good luck on the move :)

Thanks to all of you! Rickzwebz, I was actually thinking about that recently. I have added a "Back to Top" button. What'd you guys think of that? Enough? Should I repeat the menu somewhere else? Any input would be appreciated!

Moonswamp, do you mean the background image is not tall enough? What is your screen resolution?

Wildreason, thank you as well! A lot of the imagery was adapted from other forms of my branding (Business cards, etc). It took awhile to get the look how I wanted it on the blog though, haha.

Just had a look at your blog.
Like the design. Easy to read. A very nice choice of colours. Great pictures too.

It definitely is to my taste. :)
